2016 Oatmeal Festival Grand Parade

The Oatmeal Festival Grand Parade will be held on Saturday, September 3rd, 2016.

There is no fee to enter, and all are welcome. We are doing something fun this year! Bring your water guns and extra water to cool down the crowd as you pass by! (No water balloons please) Line up is at 9:00 am with judging to be done at 9:45 am. The parade starts at 10:33.

This year we are awarding ribbons in the following categories: Oatiest, Judge’s Choice, and Mayor’s Choice. Also new this year is a decorated bicycle event. Children 12 and under are encouraged to decorate their bikes and ride them in the front of the parade. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ribbons will be given for the best decorated bikes.

Have your entry form completed and sent in by August 30, 2016! No late entry forms will be accepted.

    Do children need to be registered to ride in the front of the parade?

      Hello Jennifer,
      Any child that wishes to be in the Grand Parade needs to have a form filled out by a parent or legal guardian. If they are small we ask that an adult be with them at all times for safety reasons.
